The Live Nation-produced tour begins July 19 in Camden, N.J., and runs through September 5 in Darien Lake, N.Y. Full tour details, including the line up, will be revealed at a press conference broadcast from FUSE TV studios in New York on March 16, before Mötley Crüe hits the stage across the street at Madison Square Garden that evening.
Crüe Fest 2 pre-sale tickets will be available exclusively to Mötley Crüe fan club members beginning today (Feb. 25). Beginning on March 2, pre-sale tickets will be available to the public. Fans can go to www.cruefest2.com for pre-sale information.
Last year’s debut Crue Fest featured Mötley Crüe, Buckcherry, Papa Roach, Sixx:A.M. and Trapt. The festival played for nearly half a million rock fans at Live Nation amphitheaters and arenas in 40 cities across North America.
The activities surrounding the announcement of this year’s line-up and ticket on-sale include launch parties in local venues and in-theater special screenings of a performance documentary on Crüe Fest 1, which will also be released on DVD on March 24th.
